Head coach Robert Saleh spoke to the media on Friday to provide the latest NY Jets injury report ahead of the team's Week 7 showdown with the New England Patriots.

Only two players remain on the injury report, linebacker C.J. Mosley and tight end Tyler Kroft, with both players' statuses for Sunday's game looking uncertain.

Saleh insisted that Mosley would be a game-time decision and that the Jets wouldn't have an answer on his status until Sunday morning. As for Kroft, he simply stated that "it's not looking good" indicating that he won't be able to play this week.

The likes of Jeff Smith, Adrian Colbert, Marcus Maye, and Nathan Shepherd were all full participants during Thursday's practice. Each of them had been listed on the injury report but appear good to go for Sunday.

The NY Jets could be without Tyler Kroft and C.J. Mosley in Week 7

Mosley injured his hamstring in the Jets' Week 5 loss to the Atlanta Falcons and hasn't practiced all week. Saleh's exact words regarding his standout linebacker were that it will probably "go down to the wire" in regard to if he could play on Sunday.

If Mosley were to miss time, the Jets would be incredibly thin at linebacker. Jarrad Davis is working his way back from the injured reserve, but he isn't expected to be activated prior to this Sunday's game.

That means the Jets would have just Quincy Williams, Jamien Sherwood, Blake Cashman, and Del'Shawn Phillips at the position. Sherwood would likely step into the starting lineup in place of Mosley.

As for Kroft, he's been dealing with a pretty significant back injury for the last few weeks, one that kept him from making the trip to London in Week 5. It seems unlikely that he suits up this week and a stint on IR shouldn't be ruled out.

The Jets will turn to the uninspiring trio of Ryan Griffin, Daniel Brown, and fullback Trevon Wesco to take his place. They could also promote undrafted rookie Kenny Yeboah from the practice squad as they did in their last game.

Yeboah played just five snaps in Week 5, all of which came on special teams.

The Jets are relatively healthy heading into Week 7, but they could still be without two of their starters.
